Six Times You Said “Only In Quincy” in 2016
In taking a look back at the dumpster fire that was 2016, it’s worth noting that the epidemic of crazy was not limited merely to the election, Ryan Lochte, Harambe, the Chicago Cubs, Brangelina, Colin Kaepernick, Kanye West, exploding cell phones, and the Whopperito (oh, and everybody died).
No! Quincy had its own share of bizarre, head-scratching headlines throughout the year. Fortunately, “weird” is where we shine here at KICK-FM! So without further ado, may I present the top six “Only in Quincy-est” moments of 2016…
Way back in late November (man, those were the days), a pig tried hoofing it out of West Quincy across the Memorial Bridge. Traffic stopped. People went crazy. I wrote puns. It was a whole big thing.
William Shakespeare said it best: For where thou art, there is the world itself, And where thou art not, desolation. Anyway, this mannequin danced and sold used cars for a while.
While the rest of the country was obsessing over creepy clown sightings, Quincy was haunted by a taser-waving doppelganger of the outlaw country royal “high”ness himself.
Ahh, but THEN we sent in the clowns. Freaking crazy ones too. Like, they had knives and everything. That’s messed up. What the hell is wrong with these people?
This one came down on St. Patrick’s Day of this year, so just guessing here, but perhaps alcohol was involved? Maybe the refrigerator ran out of Guinness and was all like “Is Killian’s okay?” And if that’s the case, I say the fridge was asking for it. Come on, refrigerator, get it together!
